Cool thread Jaysee!
Umm...lets see.
Serpeas, Otos, Cories, Pygmy Cories, Sparkling Gouramis, Thick Lipped Gourami, Guppies, Cardinals, Glow Lights, Bettas, Celestial Pearl Danios, Nerite Snails, Columbian Ramshorn Snail, ADF's and I think I have 1 RCS.

Oh and some pest snails. There's so many, they'd feel left out if I didn't include them.


Ahem.....I'm going to the fish store tomorrow.

I just have hatchets, neons, and a guppy right now. But you already know I plan on more, since you've been helping me figure out my stock.

Nah, I'm counting all of them. A lot of the fish in the fishroom are in breeding tanks and aren't for sale.... but their offspring will be, should they choose to breed. The ones in the sale tanks probably shouldn't be counted, huh?

Currently: Green Severums, Keyholes, Geophagus Surinamensis/Altifrons (not sure which they are yet), Kribensis, Chequered Rainbows, Yoyo Loaches, Panda Corys, Kuhli Loaches, Rummynose Tetra, Lemon Tetra, Harlequin Rasbora, Dwarf Gourami, SAE, Otos, Bettas, Neons, Guppies & Rosy Barbs.

I've also got normal Bristlenoses & Peppermint Bristlenoses. I think they are actually classed as two seperate species but I'll just count them as one. There's a tank of Red Cherry Shrimp & I'll be starting to stock my Tanganyika Biotope in a couple of days.

That makes 19 species not counting the shrimp.

31 tanks... she'll still be formulating her list all day tomorrow. And she'll need to take food breaks in between. Probably feed Shelby too. Yeah, we may see her list Friday.

I'll add another species to my list. I just got my Neolamprologus Pulcher. It's currently in a bucket drip acclimatising. I'll try to get pics of it tommorow.

With my current calculations, I'm at 61 different species, not including color morphs.

I may have forgotten a species or two. I'll have to verify when I get home. I can't help but feel like I'm leaving someone out of my calcs.

EDIT: Oops forgot the SAE's and goldfish

EDIT AGAIN: Oops, forgot the tetras in the bedroom.

I'm not sure if I can count this high
